Wedding in Paris at Chateau de Santeny

destination wedding in Paris wedding planner

It is only a few kilometers from Paris, in the magnificent castle of the village of Santeny, that P&G celebrated their union in front of their relatives coming from French and American horizons. 

The most beautiful day of their lives, July 1st, 2022, started with the arrival of the bride-to-be who entrusted her beauty and hair styling to Fanny Wong and Jho. 

During this time, my assistant and I started to put in place the first elements of decoration, including the table plans, originally placed on one of the mirrors of the castle.

From noon to 5pm, the photographer Michelle Wever and her assistant, worked to immortalize this day, starting with the photos of the accessories and spaces of the castle, then capturing the moments of preparations of the bride and groom, each in beautiful rooms of the house.

Then came the moment of the first look, in front of the castle stairs, where the groom discovered  her future wife  in a sumptuous strapless dress. It was a magical moment of happiness and love for our young couple, joined later by their bridesmaids and groomsmen.

As the ceremony was about to begin, the guests, who had just arrived with a shuttle especially for the event, were able to toast  and chat while admiring the view offered by the domain.

In an idyllic setting, adorned with a magnificent flowered arch and bouquets placed on the ground, all made by the florist Akiko Usami  and her assistant, under a radiant sun and facing a magnificent fountain in operation, the bride and groom  said yes to each other in front of their loved ones and the officiant being one of their friends. It was a moving ceremony with incredible vows shared. 

The cocktail party took place at the foot of the castle, to the sound of saxophonist Basile and DJ Martin Beatz  all in joy and happiness  

The newlyweds and their guests were able to move towards the dinner room after the famous group photo taken on top of the castle stairs.

The dinner took place on white tables beautifully decorated with flowers and beautiful granule candles. Speeches, all rhyming with humor and declaration, followed as the guests enjoyed the French cuisine.

In the middle of the meal, the bride and groom met in the privacy of the gardens for the couple session, which was also filmed by Bryan, Etcetera, the film maker, who captured some beautiful footage throughout the day, including with his drone.

Then came the long-awaited moment, the arrival of the dessert ! This arrival had all the makings of a show, the guests being all in the staircase to admire the various desserts and their artifacts on the buffet, the pyramid of champagne glasses and the arrival of the wedding cake, the French specialty: the croque en bouche.

Then came the first dance of the bride and groom followed by a dance accompanied by each of their parents. This special day ended in an electric atmosphere until the end of the night.
